Good things never come easy, it was true in my case. To jump off the mountain you need to climb up to the spot first. So from the meeting point, you are taken to the jump zone. I was too excited and at the same time a bit nervous. But it happened quite good & I felt really good It was a lifetime experience and a tick on my bucket list. Would love to try it yet again! So was river rafting.. for a 9km stretch.. it was fun with all the water splashes.
"It was a great experience. We did everything we had been told. Staff was very supportive. It was a good pick. Go for it"

    - Keep running until you soar high in the sky. In about 10 seconds, you leave the land and fly in the air.

    - Try not to lean forward during the session. When you lean too forward in your seat, it becomes difficult for your driver to handle the glider and maintain the balance. Enjoy your ride comfortably.

    - Don’t have heavy food right before your flight for obvious reasons. Since your body is not used to flying in an open sky, there are chances that you barf out all the food you have eaten a while ago. It is advisable to go for the session with an empty stomach.

    - There is a possibility that you might lose control before or during your paragliding session. Try to breathe and calm your muscles, in case you panic. It is absolutely safe to paraglide as your pilot will take care of the business.
